4oz pour from a 2014 bottle. What can I add that has already been said about this Beer. A true masterpiece! Perfect flavored stout. I need more! 5.00

750 ml bottle. 2013 cellared bottle, almost two years old. Pours black with thick brown head. Aroma is incredible chocolate, mocha coffee, touch of spice. The taste is rich chocolate, coffee, just a hint of the pepper and cinnamon but not enough to ditract. The flavor and ever present aroma made this just a delishious brew. Super soft creamy mouthfeel. Overall exceeded expectations, put this right up there with the best stouts. Want another bottle.

Maintains a awesome golden brown head. I picked up vanilla and chile from the nose. Body is delicate with a easy vanilla chile finish.

Black with a khaki head. Nose is just like mint chocolate chip or those Andes thin mints, more so as it warms. The cacao dominates the taste. It may be due to the face that it's nearly a year old, but there is no heat from the ancho peppers. It's very nice, I love getting that flavor, mildly tobacco, without being overwhelmed by heat. Velvety mouthfeel. Would love to try the barrel aged version.

Had 2014 edition with about one year of age on it. Cinnamon shows through on this beer. Not sweet like many beers of this nature. More of a spicy cinnamon up front flavor. Certainly good, but would love to try the barrel aged version. I imagine that the barrel aging would do wonders to this.
